    I remember first playing R-Type on my cousins Sega Master System around 1991. I was blown away by how good the game was – it still holds up well.

  2. Mark Greaves says:

    R-Type (on the Amiga) is my favourite game of all time 🙂

  3. Torin Doyle says:

    Peppermint OS is probably my favorite Ubuntu derivative. I love how they’ve combined the best bits from a selection of DEs.

  4. Torin Doyle says:

    I find it incredibly ironic that Google ditches Huawei. So their spying is somehow fine eh?

    @Wimpy You will drop Thunderbird for Evolution?

  6. Yes, already done in Ubuntu MATE 19.10.

    Hi Martin.

    Hmm. I’ve mixed feelings on that. I like that there’s integration with the MATE calendar but also love Thunderbird.

    BTW – On, I left a comment about snaps showing in MATE System Monitor — is this still the case on 19.10?

    Hi Mark. Yep. Classy game alright. It has ported to many platforms very well – even the ZX Spectrum version was decent. 🙂
